Aston Microphones - 'Element' Bundle
Microphone w/ Custom Shock Mount & Pop ShieldAston Microphones are back with the Aston Element Bundle. The microphone features a new Ridyon capsule, which captures recordings in world class quality without breaking the bank. The bundle is complete with a custom shock mount pop shield. The Element microphone includes capsule technology, magnetic pop filter, modern chassis design and a backlit-LED logo that indicates when the 48V phantom power is active. All these are features you would expect from a higher price point.
People around the world have noticed that the performance of Aston Microphones often surpasses other microphones in its class. The team at Aston Microphones created blind listening tests, where the public listen to industry standard microphones and reviewed the performance of each microphone. After 3 months of testing, Aston then used the data from these tests to create the Element microphone, which has proven to live up to its peers.
• Moving coil technology with super-fast transient response and extentded bass frequency response
• Side-fire single pattern cardiod microphone
• Translucent purple backlit badge
• Unique capsule technology
Influenced By The Public
Tried & TestedAfter the public had their say, the sound and voice of the Aston Element was built entirely by what the public like and what, which will end up being the people using the microphone. Over 4000 professional producers, engineers and musicians gave the team at Aston around 36,000 pieces of information to investigate. All this data came from the blind listening tests where the industry leading microphones were reviewed.
The result is an incredibly unique microphone which has earned the title of ‘The Peoples Microphone’ after 21 months of research and development with input from the public, with the right data and specifications Aston Microphones have designed a fantastic entry level microphone. Reports show that this microphone defeats every other microphone in its class.
This is the first microphone to be designed by the public and microphone users during the development process. Whilst the voicing has been all down to the public, the durable chassis design Aston are known for is still included.
Incredibly Smart DesignAn extremely flat frequency response is made possible by the construction of the chassis and capsule body themselves. The capsule utilises a smart acoustic treatment system.
The grill actually serves as a diffuser, while the contoured shape of the body (and monocoque capsule) delivers your audio to the capsule with the smallest amount of diffraction possible.
Everything You Could Ask ForThe Aston logo found on the facing side of the microphone is backlit by a purple LED when the 48V phantom power is engaged. Visible in dark studios, this works as a nice, but useful feature whilst adding to the pleasant aesthetics of the microphone.
A custom built shock mount and pop shield are also included in the Element Bundle, both with a modern look, combining great aesthetics with perfect functionality the Element comes with everything you could ask for from a recording microphone set up.
Renowned Aston Engineering
Outstanding PerformanceThe Element microphone is a side-fire, single pattern cardioid microphone, featuring innovative Ridyon capsule technology. The Ridyon was specially designed by Aston themselves. With 48V of phantom power, an incredibly lightweight active moving coil diaphragm, you get performance and sensitivity you generally only find in higher end microphones. Combining the outstanding noise rejection from a dynamic mic and natural sound characteristics you get from a ribbon mic, the Element is a fantastic multipurpose microphone.
The capsule is larger than most of its peers but this allows the diaphragm of the microphone to move further and more freely. As a result, it comes with more bass response and can resist much higher sound pressure levels without distorting.
The 360° integrated suspension not only compliments the all-round design of the microphone, but protects the Element from any bumps or knocks from any direction. Not only does the Element Bundle look great, but it delivers outstanding performance whilst having practical features all at a surprising price point.
